Dia do Livro!

Hoje, 23 de abril, é o "Dia do Livro e do Direito de Autor", criado para homenagear alguns escritores na data de sua morte, entre eles, William Shakespeare (1564-1616).

Do grande poeta e dramaturgo inglês, um soneto:


Farewell! thou art too dear for my possessing,
And like enough thou know'st thy estimate,
The charter of thy worth gives thee releasing:
My bonds in thee are all determinate.
For how do I hold thee but by the granting,
And for that riches where is my deserving?
The cause of this fair gift in me is wanting,
And so my patent back again is swerving.
Thyself thou gav'st, thy own worth then not knowing,
Or me to whom thou gav'st it, else mistaking,
So thy great gift upon misprision growing,
Comes home again, on better judgement making.
Thus have I had thee as a dream doth flatter,
In sleep a king, but waking no such matter.
